One of goals of patch certification process is to verify the bug fixes introduced by the patch. However not every bug can be easily reproduced and bug fixes can be verified. Especially considering the limited manpower, we can not verify all bugs. This wiki page is trying to give a criteria on what kind of bugs which can be bypassed without verification:

1. Bug is not related to service and software quality, for example, bug with ETICS building system.

2. The information provided on Savannah bug pages is not enough and it's difficult for you to find more infomation.

3. Bug only appears agaisnt services not in gLite release or EGEE production system.

4. Bug only appears with some special or rare services, for example, BQS batch system, Castor tape system. In this case, you can try to repoduce and verify it through production system at first. If it is still difficult to do, the bugs can be bypassed.

5. It needs too much of time, for example, more than one day, to reproduce the bug and verify the fix.

6. The bug fix is not verifiable.

Please notice that although some bugs are not verified, you still need to run certain tests defined by the service checklist to assure that the patch doesn't introduce new bugs and break services.
